Full description

Join this guided day tour from Sydney to the Blue Mountains and feel overwhelmed by the natural beauty of this World Heritage site. Marvel at the Three Sisters and the iconic rock formations.

Walk with your guide to a cliff lookout and discover panoramic views of the Jamison Valley, with its rust and pink sandstone cliffs and subtropical rainforest.

Arrive at the Blue Mountains and escape the crowds. Visit Scenic World, and ride the Scenic Railway, Skyway and Cableway. Skip the queues and head, and you can head straight to the rides! Your guide even comes on the rides with you. Enjoy a guided rainforest boardwalk and hear all the commentary about this natural ecosystem.

Following this, you will walk down the road to the Echo Point and admire the beautiful views of the Three Sister's lookout. Then, enjoy some free time wandering around, taking photos, and taking in the stunning scenery.

Tuck into a delicious lunch at the historic hotel - an excellent and warm bistro-style pub in the heart of the Blue Mountains. 

Spend some time close to some of Australia's natives at Featherdale Wildlife Park. Here you enjoy a hands-on experience with many Australian native animals, including hand-feeding a kangaroo!

Take a ferry back to Sydney along the Parramatta River. Glide past landmarks such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House, ending the trip at Circular Quay.

It was a relaxed trip, with a lot of content, reported by the guide, with visits to different perspectives and locations of the Blue Mountains. We visited several locations, points of interest, trails and parks. It was a very busy day, with enough time for the different points and moments of the tour. I recommend!

This was a great tour. The driver/guide, Steve, lives locally and had all the local knowledge to make it memorable. He took us to places that were not on the agenda and told us interesting local stories. Much thanks to Andersons Tours and particularly Steve for a great time John Weir.

Our guide Robert was excellent! He was knowledgeable, funny and we learned a lot about Australia and the area we were exploring! A great guide such as Robert can really make your trip unforgettable. Having a smaller group was nice as well. Smaller buses can go into places a large bus can not. He walked with us throughout our entire journey through the Blue Mountains.
